OpenSUSE Install :: Migrating From Windows 2000 To SuSe?

Sep 8, 2011

I need a new OS and heard about Suse for the longest time and wanted to give it a go. It's gonna be hard to let go of Win 2k, but with support degrading I need a OS that's rock stable like 2k. My main concern is application compatibility so I can run my current windows app in Suse. Ultimately I would want a multiboot so I don't lose windows 2k.

I'm using a IBM Thinkpad T61 with these configurations: T9300(2.5GHz), 4GB RAM, Cricual SSD 120GB, 14.1in 1440x900 LCD, 128MB nVIDIA Quadro NVS 140M, CDRW/DVDRW, Intel 802.11abgn, Modem, 1Gb Ether, UltraNav, Sec Chip, FPR, Camera, Windows 2000 SP4

Software :: Install Plop To The Hard Disk On A Windows 2000

Jun 28, 2011

I was going to try to install plop on a windows 2000 so that I could dual boot win and linux. I ran [URL] to install. In the command window it said that the program can't be run under a Dos box and only to continue in I was not running in windows. If I tell it to continue, windows gives me an error message that says it is trying to write directly to the hard disk. It asks me to abort or ignore. If I ignore, the program seems to run. Is this not the right way to install plop to the hard disk?

Feb 23, 2011

I've been told to setup a first ubuntu sw development pc in my office. Our network domain server is Windows 2000 Advanced. Are there any issues or limitations that would prevent this marriage?

Ubuntu Networking :: Access A Windows 2000 Shared Folder From Kubuntu?

Jun 19, 2011

I have been learning about P2P networks and have been experimenting with all kinds of operating systems. I figured out how to share and access Windows shared files on other Windows computers.

Now I'm trying to access Windows shared folders from Linux operating systems.

Here's the deal. I created a shared folder on Windows 2000 Professional. I want to open it from Kubuntu 10.04.

I am not running Virtualbox. These are separate operating systems on separate computers.

Ubuntu :: Dual Boot 9.10 / Windows 2000 Resulted In A Blue Screen?

Jan 2, 2011

I have tried dual booting Ubuntu 9.10 and W2K two times and this has resulted in a blue screen of death in the Windows partition. I have subsequently had to wipe Linux and restore Windows using fdisk/ mbr.

The MBR was set to hd0, but should this be installed on the Linux or Windows partition to prevent this?

Nov 18, 2010

I've got several language multimedia CD-Rom's, made for Windows 95/98/98 SE and 2000, that I'm using by means of my daughter's old PC (Win 98 SE O.S.). However I noticed, also, that you can perfectly use them even with Windows Vista. What I'd like to know is if you can use them even with Suse/Novell and (why not?) OpenSuse Linux.

Ubuntu :: 9.10 On A HP Pavillion 2000 Have Collapsed?

Mar 3, 2010

After having my Ubuntu 9.10 for more than 2 months and being so happy about it, it has suddenly collapsed. I do not know if collapse is the best word to describe it but it looks like but hopefully has not.

It happened like this: I switched off the computer before leaving for a 10 days trip and no problems. When I came back and switched on the computer but it was impossible to start. The screen first showed the following message:

Mount of file system failed.
A maintenance shell will now be started.
CONTROL D will terminate this shell and re-try.

I force the laptop to switch off and switch it on again. It gave me options to initialize under different versions of Karmic Koala but none work. (It gave me the option of making a memory (or file system, I do not remember well) test which I did and says there was no problem). In all the cases it went back to the message above.

I tried Control + D but again nothing. It displayed a page of information of which I write a part of it:


To see all the info after Control + D you can see the attachement (althoug not too clear)

If you can not see well the picture and the info on it I can try to make it better or transcript it.

Ubuntu Installation :: Resizing Windows Partition - Install Files On A Non Windows NTFS Partition

Jul 22, 2010

Now however its not letting me resize the Windows partition, mounted or unmounted. It currently occupies the whole disk. I would rather not reinstall the whole thing over again, but I will if I have to. Isnt there an easy way to shrink a Windows partition? I swear Ive done this before and it wasnt this hard. Could it be a problem with the Mint installer that now asks me if I want to unmount my disks before it goes into install mode? On this PC I would like to have

Windows XP
One of the E17 OSs
Puppy Linux (to create a remix)

I am probably going to put most of the linux partitions on the second laptop drive but I want to install files on a non WIndows NTFS partition.

Ubuntu :: No Boot Up After Installing Koala 9.10 Next To Win 2000

Apr 23, 2010

I installed karmic koala 9.10 via the wubi installer in a separate partition with windows 2000 being the original operating system. Now nothing boots. I use to get a 'missing ntldr' message but lately I just get a grub loading error: 'no such partition' then a 'grub rescue>' prompt and nothing else. I've tried the numerous help pages in order to see what is wrong but always get stuck when something they say to do doesn't work for me and then I don't know what to do next. I can run koala from the installation cd and can see the contents of both the linux and windows partitions. The grub folder is there too but I haven't been able to reinstall it. What I should be doing to get this drive to boot? I'm still at the stage that I require all the specifics details on *how* it should be done especially with command lines instructions.

Ubuntu :: Quicken 2000 Basic Won't Run In 10.04 WINE

Nov 10, 2010

I had to upgrade to Ubuntu 10.04 after 9.04 stopped being supported and now I can't run Quicken 2000 Basic in WINE anymore when it ran just fine under 9.04 using WINE When I try to install it from the CD ROM it gives me this error The file '/media/QWINMMR1F/install.exe' is not marked as executable. If this was downloaded or copied form an untrusted source, it may be dangerous to run. For more details, read about the executable bit. So I copied all the files from the Quicken CD to my hard drive and installed it from that folder and it completed installation without any installation errors but when I run Quicken and try to open the qdata.qdf file Quicken gives me a "can't open file" error.

I then removed WINE and installed the latest BETA Version now I can install from the CD but still get the "can't open file" error from Quicken. It worked fine under 9.04 and WINE and I could update the info in Ubuntu and it would show up under Windows and if I'd update in Windows it would show up under Linux. Now in Ubuntu 10.04 it does not work.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Any Good Replacement For Foobar 2000?

Oct 7, 2010

I love foobar 2000 but I'm always trying to shy away from windows apps. What are your recommendations as "good" replacements for foobar 2000? So far I have tried:
Amarok - Crashes all the time, and keeps saying it can't play mp3s. Used to love this app, but seems broken for me now. Even if I reinstall it.
Rhythmbox - Great, but reports the wrong bitrate on all my songs. It is very important for me to know the correct bitrate for uploading to certain sites.
Audacious - Way to simple and winamp like.
Bangarang - No.

Ubuntu :: Microsoft Office 2000 Product Key Force Shutdown

Jan 10, 2010

I installed office 2000 CD using wine, I did this on Ubuntu net-book remix on a NC10 using a networked CD drive. So the installation went okay, I then came to using the software, word opened and promoted me for my product key, which I entered correctly the window disappeared for a second then repaired, I entered the key again but then this caused the whole program to shut down, I have tried repairing it , reinstalling it all apart from uninstalling and reinstalling it. Which I have tried and subsequently failed

Right I got it to work, so for any looking for the solutions simply go to /home/(username)/.wine/system.reg and change the user name and the organisation either delete it or enter something, I entered my user name but I left the organisation blank but I left the quote marks that were there. Save it and the product code thingy should not appear again.

I am having problems opening and printing word 97/2000 formatted documents that were saved using OpenOffice in Maverick.

Anyone know what might be causing OpenOffice in Lucid to freeze when loading word 97/2000 files?

Software :: Cannot Export Outlook 2000 Into Office 2002

I have a client how likes windows 2000, and office 2000. Her outlook box got too full and that totally killed outlook. Msft provides tools to fix this, but none of them work. I managed to switch her over to thunderbird, and I got the messages transferred over, but not the address book - only the email addresses transferred. I can not export outlook 2000 into office 2002, and I don't think office 2007 will work either. I have heard of transferring the addresses into outlook express, and then transferring to outlook. Will that work?

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Install Over Windows 7?

Jul 28, 2010

I just bought a new lap top, and I can't get the Ubuntu install to work. I've installed Ubuntu on other computers about 6 times or so, but always over a Windows XP or Vista operating system, this is the first time I've tried to install it over Windows 7.I tried using a CD and a boot stick, but it still boots into Windows rather than booting from the device. I've checked the boot setup and it's setup right, to boot from the USB/CD depending on which one I attempted, but no cigar, still loads up Windows instead. I'm at a loss.The computer is an Acer Aspire 5251-1513AMD processor V120 2.2GHz2 G DDR3 RAM

Ubuntu Installation :: How To Install The Windows 7

Oct 23, 2010

I installed Ubuntu because I "accidentally" formatted my originally Windows 7 Dell Inspiron 1545. After I formatted this laptop, I tried to install Windows 7 again using the CD that came with the laptop, but an error kept coming up. I asked around on Windows 7 forums and they told me that it meant that the CD was corrupt and a possible solution was to install it using a USB thumb drive. I got impatient and installed Ubuntu instead. Now, I want to install Windows 7 alongside Ubuntu. How do I do that?
